Commodity Prioritized Maximum Dynamic Multi-Commodity Flow Problem

Due to different disasters, natural or men made, world is facing the problem of massive damage of life and property. To save the life of maximum number of evacuees, an efficient evacuation planning is essential. Prioritization is the process of deciding the relative importance or urgency of things or objects. It helps to focus on … Read more

A Capacitated Network Flow Optimization Approach for Short Notice Evacuation Planning

We present a capacity constrained network flow optimization approach for finding evacuation paths, flows and schedules so as to maximize the total evacuees for short notice evacuation planning (SNEP). Due to dynamic nature of this optimization problem, we first construct a timeexpanded network that expands the static network over the planning horizon for every time … Read more
